I'm going to really miss my husband. John loved the Lord he exit this world in good standing with the Lord. In the end he became very humble and gave all his attention to Jesus. His last words to me was "Betty God is so good." I will always remember him telling me not to worry because God is in control. John and I had went through so much down through the years. But in the end we got it right, by God's grace. I love you my darling husband. Your loving wife Betty Ann
